Emerald 5K Fun Run

, , ,

The Emerald 5K Fun Run is a Run/Walk event on the Forest Rose Bike Path, one of Lancaster’s preferred paths for 5K charitable events.

This path, a section of the Fairfield Heritage Trail, is a well-maintained asphalt trail that begins at the Ohio University Lancaster campus parking lot and heads south along the edge of campus. A small waterway, Fetters Run, borders the trail to the east. One-third of a mile from the trailhead is the John Bright #2 covered bridge, built in 1881 in nearby Carroll and moved to this site in 1988. Continue on your way to reach John Bright #1, another bridge, which was built by the Hocking Metal Bridge Company. Continuing on you pass Lancaster High School and its many athletic fields and tennis courts, an exercise course and the football stadium, all paralleling Arbor Valley Drive. After another 0.25 mile you cross Fetters Run via the painstakingly restored McCleery Covered Bridge, upon which you reach Thomas Ewing Junior High School at Fair Avenue. From there you return on the same trail back to the finish line at the Ohio University Lancaster campus parking lot.
